Promedica plans health and wellness center at Starlite Plaza

Posted: Updated:
There could soon be new life at Starlite Plaza in Sylvania.

Promedica has some major development plans for the former Churchill's and parts of the shopping center.

If everything goes as planned, and city leaders sign off, the empty buildings would become a three story, nearly 230,000 square foot health and wellness center.

The $45 million project will be unique, centralizing some 200 doctors under one roof.

The goal is to make visits easier on patients and promote collaboration between physicians.

For many of the businesses in the area, this is exciting news.

"I think it's nice because the property has been vacant and a lot of the store fronts have been empty so the increase in traffic will be good for us," Teri Brant, who works at Dave's Performance Footgear, said.

Next door at the Buckeye Store and More, the owner is also anxious to see development.

"The patient count, I've heard is somewhere between 2,000 and 5,000 a day will go through this parking lot a day and that's even better than a grocery store," Jim Damschroder, Owner, Buckeye Store and More said.

Ralphie's, Dave's Performance Footgear and New Balance, and the Buckeye Store and More will all stay put.

If everything is a-go, construction would take a little more than a year.

The zoning committee will talk more about it at its June 11th meeting.
